. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
the united nations general assembly in a just-released excerpt shows the president touching on the familiar theme which is preventing a nuclear iran, saying we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness that power for peace. make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. richard roth is at the u.n. this morning for us. richard, good morning. much anticipation about the president's speech today. >> good morning, soledad. yes, president obama, as you mentioned, is going to be speaking about iran and other hot spots in the middle east. certainly we've seen huge stories developing in the last two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time is not limited. the u.s. president is going to be saying that there is just a time limit to diplomacy. the u.s. and many other nations extremely worried about iran's nuclear capability. iran's leader, mahmoud ahma
obligations. now, ahmadinejad's will address the united nations and the world in a speech on wednesday. that happens to be the holiest day on the jewish calendar. prime minister netanyahu will take the podium the day after and he has been aggressive on the need to stop iran's nuclear ambition. he says iran will be 90% to a bomb in six months. a bomb he says will hurt america. >> all the things you see now in these mobs storming the american embassy is what you'll see in a regime with atomic bombs. you can't have people have atomic bombs. >> so, what's causing this escalation? two words. the united states. specifically the election battle between these two men. either mitt romney or barack obama will be the one to decide on the war or peace question. prime minister netanyahu seems to be betting on romney. romney has known him for 35 years. he visited him on the campaign trail in israel. and i even saw one of mitt romney's books on netanyahu's study shelf in jer use lem. he even appears in a pro romney ad in florida. >> the fact is, that every day that passes, iran gets closer and closer
that our 193 member at the united nations, there's only one member, iran, that is openly calling for the destruction of another member. israel. there's only one member openly denying the holocaust. there's only one member of the united nations that is constantly, habitually instigating violence all over the world, from latin america, through north africa all the way to central asia and certainly in the middle east. for all those reasons and many more, the world simply cannot and should not tolerate the very notion of iran becoming nuclear. >> do you ever feel conflicted when you look at iran, it has a jewish member of parliament, there's been a series on the holocaust, television series that aired in iran. there is a small jewish community there. do you ever feel conflicted at all in that sometimes their actions in that way, don't appear to be anti-jewish. >> i don't think the world has an issue with the iranian people. i think the world has an issue with the ongoing threat posed by the iranian leadership. i think what they're doing is irresponsible and reckless in the first plac
as israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu drew one before the united nations general assembly to represent the red line he wants for iran to end its nuclear program. iran's ambassador to the u.n. says he won't dignify it with a response. except to deny iran is trying to make a nuclear bomb. but president obama did respond. he and netanyahu spoke today over the telephone. cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty joining us from new york. jill, do we know what the president, president obama said to israeli prime minister? >> reporter: well, we do, fred. in fact, they issued this statement and you have to, as you're reading it, say, well, they certainly pulled that back on track because after all, you know, the president didn't meet one personally with the prime minister, and that was interpreted of course as a very cold shoulder. there was worry, though, that this was being exploited as, you know, criticism especially in this campaign as being a rift between the united states, and i should say at least present between president obama and israel so they had this telephone call. i shou
to help prevent all-out war with iran. let's go to richard roth, our senior united nations correspondent. first, let's talk about mahmoud abbas. last year he failed at that same podium to make the case that the palestinian status should be raised as a state, that they should have statehood. now he's going to go back and say we want a beefed-up status for palestinians shy of statehood. what would that accomplish? why is he doing that? >> well, for them, it's another symbolic improvement of their situation diplomatically. it is a step-down from the rousing reception he received last year when he announced that the palestinians want their own state and they made a push for it. the united states blocked them in the security council. the only organization here at the u.n. that can approve that. the u.s. has veto power. now they're back to palestinians. something called non-u.n. member status. it allows them to be on the same level as the vatican, allows them to vote in different u.n. organizations, potentially get closer in the international criminal court for bringing cases to israel. it's a
president takes the stage at the united nations one last time. but spares the world his usual jabs and bombshell proclamations. is it an attempt to try to go out as a stasman? plus, president obama and mitt romney go head-to-head in a state neither one can afford to lose this november. you'll hear from both of them live in minutes. and is the pentagon getting too cozy with hollywood? why some say the latest military films reveal too many national secrets. welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. wolf blitzer is off. i'm joe johns. and you're in "the situation room." >>> there were empty seats and walkouts at the united nations today ahead of what was expected to be a fiery offensive final speech from the provocative iranian president ahmadinejad. but while some of the usual rhetoric was there, this year's speech had a very different tone. cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is in new york with the latest. jill. >> reporter: well, joe, it's not what some people expected. it was short on threats, but on bl somadinejad delivered his sn to the u.n.
roland rtin and erick erickson,editor and chief of redstate.com. if you were watching the united nations general assembly, you sawthe prime ministeof israe benjamin netanyahu literally draw a red line saying this is how far iran can go in its nuclear program, but no further. watch this. >> if these are the fact if these are the facts,and the are, whoulhere s a red line be drawn? a lin should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> and the prime minister says that probably will happen by the summer, this coming summer. the latest six or seven months from now. let's get reaction. erick erickson, what do you think of the presentation that prime minister netanyahu made today? >> i thought it was very simple and very effective. i can guarantee you what the headlines are going to be tomorrow on this issue. people are focused on what tanyahu di inrestingly enough i think it -- test on this election a lot of coti republicans praised him. a lot of democrats and liberals on twitter and elsewhere thought it wasly silist, but fac

the israeli prime minister pulled out a couple of props at the united nations general assembly yesterday and drew his own red line. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right he here. before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment. necessary to make a bomb. >> now, that cartoon exploded twitter you could say. foreign affairs reporter's le t elise lavin is here. there was a little outreach to the united states. >> definitely, i think in one sense there's been a lot between the two on this so-called red line and i think netanyahu was shocked he didn't meet him. he sees a real possibility that president obama can be off -- in office and knows he needs to work with president obama on a nuclear iran but at the same time, their presentation yesterday was very effective because he really sent out an urgency saying iran could have a bomb by next summer or spring. >> you know, i look at that red line. we were just talking about this, the camera caught us. what does that exactly mean when you cross that? >> it's a threshold over which if iran passe

, they never last. >> jason carol, many thanks to you. >>> today at the united nations, the middle east takes center stage and the diplomats will hear two very different views of the world, the headliner, most likely, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu will issue dire warnings on the nuclear program and the threat it poses to the world and they will hear from president mahmoud abarks one year after his failed plea for statehood, he will seek a modest goal, a nonstate membership to the united nations. the issue of palestinian state hood was championed in one of wednesday's most highly anticipated speeches, came from egypt. 's newly elected president and the former leader of the muslim brotherhood. he called on the united states to support palestinian rights just as it did the arab uprisings. >> just as you've support the revolution of the arab people, i call upon to you lend your support to the palestinians and their endeavor to regain the full and legitimate rights of people struggling to gain its freedom and establish his independent state. >> don't expect the white house to say muc

's a quote from their meeting. that followed netanyahu's blistering speech at the united nations general assembly, made it very clear israel would demand a red line to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. literally drawing that line in front of the audience. here's how it went. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> the spokesman for the israeli prime minister netanyahu, nice to have you with us this morning. we appreciate your time. >> thanks for having me. >> earlier this week we were talking about the hostility that seemed to be there between the prime minister and the president. now we end the week with a speech from benjamin netanyahu, which uses the words, appreciation, and common goal. i'm going to play a little chunk of that speech and then i'll ask you a question on the other side. >> i very much appreciate the president's position, as does everyone in my country. we share the goal of stopping iran's nuclear weapons program. this goal unit

commandos were sent to that benghazi compound. this was back in april. if you think back a u.n. -- united nations convoy in the region had been attacked. growing security concerns at that time back in april, about what was going on in that region in eastern libya. so, the u.s. sent a team of about four special forces, commandos to the benghazi compound. they did a security assessment. what could be done to improve security at the facility. and they recommended apparently, we are told, a couple of things that seem fairly minor in retrospect. sand bagging some positions so libyan forces who were there, contractors, essentially, could help fight back if the place came under attack and also were training for some of that private security force that was hired for the consulate compound. no word on how much of this was implemented and whether there were additional security recommendations beyond that. it really goes to the point that as far back as april, there were growing security concerns there, something the ambassador would have been well aware of as the militias in eastern libya appeared

information that could impact the national security of the united states and the safety of u.s. installations in other countries. we have just learned, for instance, that the benghazi mission was operating under a security waiver at the time of the attack. that means that typical security standards did not apply, mainly because the compound was temporary in nature. we don't yet know who made that decision or who was in on it but we do think that people need to know where the process broke down, if it broke down. we think you need to know what happened to u.s. personnel in benghazi. we've got a lot to talk about tonight with former homeland security advisor fran townsend. as we often mention, fran's a member of the external advisory committee, and recently visited libya with her employer. also joining us, former cia officer bob baer. i don't want to get into the journalistic details with you, but there's no doubt, what do you make of the fact that this consulate in benghazi three days after the attack apparently wasn't being guarded and journalists are wandering all over the place, and anybody
